What an achievement hey and still so many of you, from our early days, continue to play along with us each challenge. It makes us flush with pride and we are so privileged to have your continued support. We hope you'll enjoy this one and celebrate with us too!

We've invited 4 of our most recent Design Team members back as our guest designers, this month, as well as our sponsors! Yes we have 2 sponsors for February; one for each challenge. 

Ex Design Team member SarahG is also offering a spectacular prize this month so read on for more details about that AND we've another mystery prize giveaway too. PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible for either of these 2 prizes you need to play along in both challenges this month

So let's get down to introducing the first of our birthday challenges and here's the cue card

Our awesome sponsor for this challenge is Uniko and we're delighted to have the super talented and owner of Uniko Guest Designing with us. Please welcome Bev and if you've never visited the Uniko blog HERE and HERE you are missing out on lots of fun!

Let's see what our design team and guest designers have to inspire you and do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there! We all love a visit and I'm sure they'd all appreciate it too.

Guest Designers: 

Bev - Uniko

Hi, I’m Sarah and I love card making, mixed media and basically playing with all types of inks, stamps, stencils, pastes and paints.  Card making challenges got me in to blogging and I have made lots of wonderful friends in blogland.  I have been on several design teams including Less is More and still take part on a regular basis – I am so pleased to be playing along with Sarah and the wonderful DT for this birthday month!  Since leaving LIM, I have started making and selling a range of laser cut stencil designs in my Folksy shop– I am regularly adding to the range and also sell mdf shapes/embellishments.  I hope you can pop over to take a look.  I post regularly on my  blog and it would be great to see you there

Current LIM Designers:





We hope you'll feel inspired to play along with us and have some fun and our generous sponsor for this challenge is Uniko.

  9. Happy 7th Birthday, LIM! Also, I'd like to extend my thanks to Nonni for her constructive comment on my card. I appreciate your words of correction and encouragement. Your comment was lovely, kind & thoughtful. I that it think sets a wonderful example for DT members, myself included. This is the kind of comment that will benefit the challenge and the players. You spoke the truth in love and that is greatly needed in this world. Great job, and again, many thanks.

  10. Some great cards in the gallery to celebrate your seven years. I'm afraid my entries have been somewhat spasmodic but I do enjoy looking at your wonderful DT cards and seeing what comes up in the gallery, and am sad that time ran out on me this week. Congratulations on your seven years though. x
